7:00 am
broke out this morning in san jose. ktvu's janine de la vega is there. her details are coming later. 24 hours from now donald trump is expected to announce his vice presidential running mate. 7:00 this thursday morning, july 14th. i am gasia mikaelian. >> good morning. i am dave clark. it's warm, isn't it? >> i can tell the difference. >> steve paulson has been talking about your weather. he's got things to tell you. >> from here to here. >> yeah. >> i mean, it just depends, guys. if you are in that fog, coast, it's on the cool side. if you are inland, it's probably already getting warm pretty quick here. the fog is not making much of an impact ex except for in the city. most of it, not all of it, filling in north of point reyes. inland lots of sunshine. warm to hot.
7:01 am
90s for many. a lot of fog by the coast. that's a cold pattern if you're stuck in it. started off around half moon bay and moves north and it's trying to link up with some from the mendocino coast. probably not. it will take a turn teeny point reyes. there is a teeny breeze. it's not going to help inland. mid 60s for some. low-to-mid 50s for others. peninsula 56, 57. belmont 57. hillsboro 57. 58 los altos hills. there are some cool readings. low 50s for some. thick fog to the monterey metro area. patchy fog but warm to hot. near 101 well inland. this looks like the hottest day. by the weekend everybody will cool down. today 60s, 70s, 80s coast and bay and a lot of 90s to 101 inland. 7:01, sal. what's on your screens there? you see something? >> i am trying to save this. it's all computer based. we are ready to go, steve.
7:02 am
>> you ready? you sure? you sure? >> let's do that thing that i like. ready? let's do it. do it. love it! traffic authority. westbound 80 as you head towards the carquinez bridge from the carquinez bridge to the macarthur maze, that traffic there is looking pretty good. there are no major problems. 27 minutes is not a bad time. it's average. average speed 43 miles per hour. when you get to the bay bridge toll plaza, you will see that traffic is backed up for a 20- minute delay. no major issues as you drive through. getting word of a new crash in san francisco along northbound 101 approaching caesar chavez, and i am going to see, if we can go to the maps, some of the road sensors starting to get a little bit slow, at least to believe that there is indeed something here. we will follow up on that. 7:02. let's go become to the desk. we will start with information that's new this morning. more about that grassfire that
7:03 am
started in the east hills of east san jose. >> janine de la vega, you're in san jose with the very latest on the fire. what do you know now? >> reporter: dave, fire captain told us that they think this may have been started by fireworks. they did find a roman candle nearby, and they took it from evidence. here you can see behind me some of the land that is just charred here. this is four miles up sierra road. it's high above the city of san jose. this is what it looked like earlier. the fire was reported 2:30 this morning. when firefighters arrived flames were burning on both sides of the road. they say it was a slow-burning fire, but it was moving downhill, and that caused concern because houses are down below and so is allen rock park. 70 firefighters from san jose and calfire worked to extinguish it. they got a handle on it by 4 this morning. fire officials say the fire looked suspicious because it's all open land and you need a
7:04 am
heat source. >> this area here, there has been fireworks activity up here, you know, before 4th of july, after 4th of july. so when you have a fire moving very slowly, as this one was when we got here, having to jump a wide road like that is unlikely. >> reporter: fire officials will look into that possibility. they don't know if somebody was playing with fireworks and this accidentally started, but fireworks are illegal in san jose and for the most part for this very reason. it's dangerous because there is so much dry vegetation in the hills and in other areas. anything can spark a fire from a cigarette to a lawn mower. fire officials say had this fire happened during the day when it was hotter and when there was wind, it could have spread easily and it may have become a threat to the homes and the park below. there are firefighters still here on the scene. there is a crew watching it because every once in a while we can see a little smoldering
7:05 am
coming from the ground. >> thank you. we will check back later. to the north bay where firefighters up in novato are still trying to determine what caused a fire that broke out in a two-story home yesterday evening. the department posted this picture of the fire. can you see a lot of active orange flame as well as black smoke rising. the garage and second floor of this home near novato high school were engulfed in flames by the time crews got there. it took 30 firefighters from novato, san rafael and marinwood a half an hour to put out a two-alarm fire. no injuries were reported. time is 7:05. anticipation is building. the clock is counting down until donald trump announces his pick for a running mate. >> christien kafton with a good look at some of those picks. >> absolutely. the big announcement expected to be made at 11:00 eastern time tomorrow morning. donald trump saying the field of potential running mates has
7:06 am
been narrowed. the question now, what is trump looking for in a vice president? >> somebody that's very good. somebody who is solid, who is smart. i am not looking for an attack dog. >> if you were following your twitter feed, donald trump tweeted out he will be announcing his pick 11:00 tomorrow morning in manhattan. he says details will follow. the top contenders seem to be new jersey governor chris christie, indiana governor mike pence, and former house speaker newt gingrich. >> the point he made at the meeting to all of us was only one person knows who is gonna be the vice president, and that person doesn't know yet. >> i am honored to be on that list. >> pence and gingrich are both seen as choices that could appeal to the republican establishment. since dropping out of the race, chris christie has become a trusted advisor to the trump campaign. there may be a clue in the list of speakers for the republican convention next week. that includes newt gingrich and chris christie, but not mike pence.
7:07 am
of course, the pick for his vp going to set the tone going forward for november. who knows who he is going to pick, really? >> right. >> we have narrowed it down. but he has been such a loose cannon so far, it could be somebody even off the board. >> this campaign has been full of surprises. >> more to come, i am sure. >> christien kafton thank you. 7:07. with those possibilities being discussed this morning our question of the day is, who do you want to see named as vice president? and this goes for either candidate. will that sway your vote? post a comment on our facebook page or tweet us. officials in cleveland, ohio, say they are ready for the republican convention. it starts monday. security is top priority. now, the head of the police union had complained for months that officer had not been trained and would not have the equipment they need because it was ordered late.
7:08 am
the police chief says security is a critical priority and his department is ready for big crowds. now, the law in ohio allows people to openly carry guns, but there is a secure zone around the convention hall where guns will not be allowed. 7:08. hillary clinton speaking in illinois talked about race relations here in the united states and the need for unity following last week's violence in dallas, minnesota and louisiana. clinton spoke yesterday at the historic old state house in springfield, illinois, where abraham lincoln delivered his house divided civil war speech. she referenced lincoln a number of times and used history to take swipes at her republican opponent. >> this man is the nominee of the party of lincoln. we are watching it become the party of trump. >> today hillary clinton will speak at the league of united latin american citizens national convention in
7:09 am
washington, d.c. 7:08. there is yet another twist in a council member race in santa clara county. an automatic recount is expected to confirm the official results showing councilman win losing his bid. supporters will pay for another recount. the official winner of the race set to take over that council seat in january calls that move an act of desperation. the new recount is set to begin july 19th. it will take about ten days. caltrans has the final design for a third eastbound lane to help ease traffic on the richmond san rafael bridge. the plan was presented yesterday to the bay area toll authority oversight committee. it calls for a third lane on the lower deck. it includes a bike lane on the top deck. the two projects have a $74 million price tag. the new lanes could be ready for vehicles by december of 2017. we are following developing news in oakland. detectives at the scene of a deadly shooting right now.

7:18 am
50 miles of the arctic circle. so other locations are very warm. alaska has been very warm. so you know things have to change eventually, and it looks like they will. for us the fog will be flying in, but not today. it's mainly confined to the coast. there is not enough of a breeze. there might be a little one out to sfo or locations near the coast. that's it. 50s, 60s on the temps. looking south gilroy's already 61. 99. santa cruz 54. they get the sun later. it's a tough pattern for santa cruz. i went upper 60s, low 70s there. it's already 62 cupertino and campbell. you know they will warm up pretty quick. 90s there. 39 in truckee. 64 reno. 51 cold, foggy in monterey. 52 incline village. 41 south lake tahoe. no thunderstorm activity. 39 truckee. tahoe city is 52. there is fog and that will play into a cool coast forecast. everyone else warm to hot. it looks like this high pressure system will start to head over to missouri, illinois, somewhere there, and set up shop for all of next

7:23 am
california air quality officials say a settlement plan with volkswagen to recall its diesel cars is insufficient. they say they rejected the recall of 16,000 diesel cars in our state because it didn't allow the agency to evaluate the effectiveness of the repair. volkswagen admitted to diesel cars cheating on pollution tests. this is the second time the air
7:24 am
resources board has prevented a plan by volkswagen. according to the examiner, they say a consultant owes the city $25,000. they specialize in tunnels and underground facilities. the central subway will connect chinatown to the south of market area. 7:24. a woman from el dorado hills learned a tough lesson after she was tricked into giving away almost $3,000 in what turned out to be an irs phone scam. the woman who asked not to be identified says she received several messages from someone claiming to be with the irs. when she called back the person on the other line demanded that she immediately withdraw money from her bank, buy itunes gift cards and read the numbers on the gift cards as a form of payment for money owed to the irs. well, it wasn't until after she gave the scam artist about
7:25 am
$2,800 worth of gift card codes that she realized what happened. >> very, very pushy. they just kept sounding like they were trying to reassure me. >> give me the call back and i will be able to assist you. once again, this is the irs. >> now, the woman told her father what was going on, but there was really nothing authorities could do to get her money back. she managed to return some of the gift cards that were not used. she is hoping her story will serves as a warning to others about the scam. a new jersey woman is facing charges of obstruction of justice after authorities say she skipped out on paying a tunnel toll hundreds of times. denise siemian is accused of not paying the $15 toll at the holland tunnel more than 500 times. yesterday police stopped her when she allegedly tried do it again, and later they found she owed more than $16,000 in unpaid tolls. a brazen robbery of gun stores in northern california.

7:27 am
7:28 am

7:30 am
>> and good morning. i am dave clark. we want to talk about your weather. you will feel some difference. depends where you are. steve paulson has the forecast. >> absolutely, dave and gasia. if you are by the coast, it's going to be nice. maybe even cold. if you are out near the fort, it is freezing. at the base of sutra, that tells us it's low. some came over the golden gate. marin headlands, point reyes south, it's solid. san mateo forecast, the san mateo coast, santa cruz down to monterey very thick as well. some areas like, where is the sun? inland it's about. around the bay as well. there is not enough of a delta breeze. anything less than ten at travis is a sure sign it won't take long to warm up. mid 60s, upper 60s, and some low 50s will change pretty fast. 53 sebastapol. calistoga 67. kelseyville 63. did have some low 50s, but it didn't last very long. fog plays into a cool forecast for some. for many it will be warm to hot. near 101 inland.
7:31 am
nice to cool by the coast. probably north of point reyes all right. south of that dealing with fog. 60s, 70s, 80s and a lot of 90s to near 101 inland. sal, 7:31. how would you give the traffic so far? >> a b-plus. it's not too bad. there is a little bit of slow traffic out there, which is to be expected. we have some slow traffic at the toll plaza, of course. you will see that it is backed up to about the macarthur maze. it's very crowded on the 880 ramps as well. you will be waiting at least 15 minutes before you make it onto the span. we are also looking at the san mateo and dumbarton bridges. not a bad commute, but there is waiting to do. again it's characteristically slow hayward to fremont. san jose northbound 280 is filling in. in fact, all the freeways to the west valley is slow. one is not better than the other, so to speak. you will be in a lot of slow traffic. let's go back to the desk. >> thank you.
7:32 am
you heard gasia say moments ago developing news along the oakland-emeryville border. early this morning the body of a man who was shot to death was found. ktvu's alex savidge here now to tell us what we're finding out about the victim. alex. >> reporter: well, dave, good morning to you. the man who was shot to death early this morning was in his 30s according to police, and in talking with some people in this area we believe that this man was likely headed over to the convenience store at this chevron gas station this morning when he was gunned down. and you can see the area taped off here this morning as this investigation unfolds. it was about 4 a.m. when police got a shots spotter activation from this area. officers showed up here. they found the man in this case lying in the street with several gunshot wounds and he died here at the scene. now, police tell me they are working to pull surveillance video from this gas station in hopes of identifying the shooter who took off after this crime. a sergeant here at the scene
7:33 am
told me they are not getting a whole lot of help from people who were in the area when the shooting happened. >> are you getting any witnesses? anyone cooperating in terms of giving you any information? >> at this time, no, we do not. >> reporter: is that unusual? >> no, it's not. >> reporter: one man who was working nearby at the time of the shooting told me he heard as many as five gunshots. now, police say it's so early on here, they don't know what the motive may have been for this killing. but again they are still working to identify the victim or they have not released the identity, i should say, of this victim, but they are saying the man in his 30s shot and killed near this gas station this morning. now, in terms of the investigation, obviously a lot of streets shut down here. we should let folks at home know that the northbound lanes of san pablo avenue are closed because of this homicide investigation, and also 35th street is shut down entirely as well.
7:34 am
if you know this area, a lot of people use 35th street to get to eastbound 580. this will be shut down here for the next couple of hours. keep that in mind as you head out the door. >> all right. alex savidge. thank you. we will talk to you later. time is 7:34. two people were arrested in connection with a shooting in the hayward area yesterday afternoon. a man was killed as he sat in his pickup truck at a traffic light. this happened at 1:00 at meekland avenue and blossom way in alameda county. the shooter started shooting, then ran away. deputies searched for him using k-9 units and a drone. an officer eventually found the suspect, but he did not have the gun on him. >> it's a public safety concern to have a weapon on the loose. obviously, it's evidence. it's of vital importance to us. >> authorities later made a second arrest. surveillance video shows an suv dropped off the gunman before the shooting. investigators tracked down that vehicle and took a woman into custody. they are still out there
7:35 am
looking for the gun and a possible motive to that shooting. time is 7:35. the san francisco police department could soon get some help in hundreds of unsolved killings. san francisco police department has asked mayor ed lee and the chief for funds to expand the cold case unit. they say the unit has one fun- time expecter and two retired inspectors. it would pay for two more inspectors to work part time. time is 7:35. oakland police and federal agents are investigating several gun store burglaries in northern california. that's after a honda crv used in at least one of the burglaries was linked to oakland. look at this surveillance video. also showing a burglary suspect wearing an oakland usa sweatshirt. this happened during a gun store break-in early yesterday morning. the video clearly shows the faces of three of the burglars in that break-in about 4:00
7:36 am
yesterday morning in rockland. about 45 minutes later there was another gun store burglary in folsom. knew, the rockland gun store owner says it is disturbing to have his store broken into. >> to have somebody just think they can just take it really bothers me. i have worked hard my whole life. >> police in east oakland stopped an suv matching the one used in that rockland burglary. federal agents say they detained several suspects, but wouldn't say anything more specific about their investigation. but federal charges could carry longer sentences if the suspects are convicted. investigators are now trying to figure out if the same suspects are responsible for a series of gun store burglaries in northern and southern california gun stores in the last five months. they include thefts in the bay area, in sacramento, and in the central valley. well, the two men accused of robbing an armored truck and shooting a guard are due in
7:37 am
court today in sonoma county. ivan morales and surge gusa, investigators say they robbed the armored truck in front of a chase bank in windsor on tuesday and shot an armored truck guard three times. rd coming "the press democrat," that man is still in critical condition. new this morning, supreme court justice ruth bader ginsberg says she regrets her public criticism of donald trump. she said in a statement just issued by the court this morning that judges should avoid commenting on a candidate for public office. in a statement, she promises to be more circumspect in the future. she told a reporter trump was a faker. trump responded by calling for
7:38 am
ginsberg to resign because, quote, her mind is shot. lbgt history is a step closer to being included in california history books. brian flores is here to explain the proposal. >> reporter: the last time the state's public school history and social studies curriculum was changed was about ten years ago. a lot has changed since that time, including the rights of the lbgt community. now this proposed curriculum is scheduled to be reviewed today by the state education board. then the draft starts introducing concepts of diverse families in the second grade. then in the fourth grade students are taught with california's role in the gay rights movement. more on lbgt topics like gender roles in the 18th and 19th century will be taught in fifth and eighth grades. it will continue on through high school. up until now, the implementation has been slow due to attempts to overturn it
7:39 am
as well as budget cuts. some people are critical of the curriculum saying other groups and the details of their struggles are being left out. other details including president obama's time in office, the presero program and contributions of the filipino community before world war ii as well as the farm workers movement. now, there is another group that wants changes made to california textbooks. the california chapter of the council on american-islamic relations says there are inaccurate portrayals of islam. this morning the group is submitting new proposals to the state board of education, which is expectled to vote on making those changes later today. an organization known to have children and young adults in oakland. we talk live with the executive director of the east oakland youth development center to tell us what they have in store

of our young people. not only are they starting and accessing college, but they are persisting and completing. we will be presenting 24 young people who graduated this past may. so people can see what college success looks like. >> how long have you been doing this, and why have you been doing this? >> thank you. we created the pathway to college program back in 2003. we recognized our young people did not know how to access college. so many of them are first in their family to go. truth be told, you know, here we are, what, 13 years later, a lot of the systems have changed. so i couldn't even advise my own son on how to go to college because i went so long ago and things have changed. preparing them for the fafsa and navigating, understanding how to pay for school. it is so expensive. and they have got to really put themselves out there and apply for as many as possible. so we decided let's create our own fund to be the first to help our young people.
7:45 am
>> that's why i wanted to have you on tv. also, we know that something's happening today. there is going to be a march today. >> yes. >> tell me about that. >> yes. we always want to arm our young people with the power of their voice. so for, let's see, 15 years we have been doing marches against violence. it was an idea that came up from the kids. what we're trying to share with them is we're gonna be going from 98 fire station all the way down the eoydc. the kids have been working on banners and flyers because they understand what violence is going on in their communities and communities across the country. and what we always say is that black and brown lives can't matter until -- until black and brown lives matter, all lives can't matter. so what they can do is fight with the power of their voice. you can't just behavior way through violence. you must act. but you have to act in a way that organizes and states what
7:46 am
you want. >> and it's positive, like what you are involved in? >> absolutely. violence is never the answer. >> so the scholarships this weekend very, very positive, and the march later today. regginae jackson, the east oakland youth development center, always doing great stuff. >> thank you so much for your support. >> i am glad you made time for us. >> anytime. >> and you can find out more information about the event. you see it on your screen. sunday, july 17th from 3 to 6 p.m. at the coliseum lexus in oakland. wonderful event. to get ticket information, we have a link on our channel 2 website ktvu.com. check it out. click on the web link tab. thank you again, regginae. >> thank you. >> gasia, back to you. >> thank you. at 7:46, we will get you out the door with traffic. sal is here to do that. >> thank you very much. eastshore freeway we have slow traffic especially in the upper part of richmond heading out to the macarthur maze. it gets better by the time you

reach emeryville. when you get to the bay bridge, there is waiting to do. a very pro bust delay at the -- a very robust delay at the toll plaza. 780 starts to improve. pretty soon the rest of that backup starts to improve as well. if you are thinking about bailing on the bay bridge and using the san mateo or the dumbarton bridge, i don't think there is much of an advantage, quite honestly. you are just going to drive into more slow traffic that is on those spans as well. when you get to the peninsula, 101 is moderate, but 280 is good except for the part between daly city and san bruno. southbound 280 is slow from the ceremony mall all the way to the 380 interchange. 7:47. let's bring in steve. >> thank you, sal. very good morning. very start off from the san jose hills. it's going to be warm to hot. temperatures to east san jose, morgan hill, gilroy to 93 to 99

8:01 am
to get much at all. it's solid. there is not enough northwest hayward, northwest oakland, there is a slight breeze but not enough that it will matter. 70 fairfield. san jose 67. santa rosa now warming up quick. same for napa. concord, also livermore. by the coast 52 half moon bay. low 60s for some. los altos, palo alto, atherton in there close for others. fog and low clouds means a cool pattern by the coast, but warm to hot inland. temperatures i think by tomorrow will drop coast and bay and they will really drop by the weekend. more on that in about ten minutes. sal, 8:01. you gave a b-plus on the traffic. has that changed? >> yeah, not too bad. there is slow traffic which you except on a regular morning commute.
8:02 am
a 15 to 20-minute before you make it onto the bridge. a tweet from someone saying can you talk about the san mateo and dumbarton bridge? i have been quite a bit. i am happy to do more because a lot of people think that the san mateo or dumbarton bridge are decent alternates. today i really, to be honest, cannot recommend them. they are heavy and slow. getting there on 880 would take you a long time, too. i would just use whatever bridge is closer because all the commutes are slow. san jose has improved right there northbound 280 on the right-hand side of the screen heading away from the camera. traffic is moving better than it was a few moments ago. let's go back to the desk. >> thank you. we are following a developing story in oakland. it's an active investigation into an early morning homicide. we will bring in live pictures here. you see a number of police officers and others along san pablo avenue.
8:03 am
>> we have had a crew there since 5:30 this morning. they are still collecting information. we will get an update later on in this newscast. also new this morning a fire in the east hills of san jose this morning. look at these pictures. it may have been started by fireworks. >> ktvu's janine de la vega has been on the story all morning long from san jose and is live there with more. janine. >> reporter: gasia, the area that we're standing in is vista point where there is a parking lot and there is benches. you can see the city of san jose behind me and this burned land. this is an area where we're told by the open space authority that is a party area where people have come to drink. you can see there are some beer bottles left here in this burnt area where people were apparently partying last night. firefighters also tell us people have set off fireworks here before, and the way that the fire behaved makes them think this is suspicious. when firefighters arrived here just after 2:30 a.m. the flames were on both sides of sierra road. it was burning in an area where
8:04 am
there are no homes. there is just open land. there was no wind, and the fire was moving slowly. so fire officials say it's unlikely the fire jumped the road. a captain told us that it's possible that someone set off fireworks on both sides of the road. 70 firefighters from calfire and san jose were on scene helping extinguish the flames. it took them an hour to get it contained, but it ended up burning 10 acres. here's what they found. >> we have walked around the whole area. we haven't found any in this area over here, but often there are fireworks in a parking area. i think there was a roman candle that was found over in the parking area. weather it was left over from -- whether it was left over from the 4th of july, we don't know. this is an area where people have lit off fireworks in the past. >> reporter: fire officials took the roman candle for evidence. fireworks are illegal in san jose. they want people to know it's very dangerous to play with them, especially where there is dry vegetation. fire personnel and resources
8:05 am
were called up here because this fire was moving downhill towards homes. about a two mile hike from where the fire was burning. fire officials say had this fire happened during the day when it was hotter and there was wind, it could have spread easily and it could have become a real threat. back to you. >> and janine, here we are a week and a half away from the 4th of july, and illegal fireworks are still an issue? >> reporter: yeah. you know, i was asking, you know, the people from the open space authority, you know, how often do people come up here and, you know, drink or, you know, or are fireworks happening? she said almost every night, every other night. they have patrols. they have rangers that come up around here. but, you know, they don't always catch it. not confirmed that it was fireworks, but they are saying it's suspicious and it may have been. >> okay. janine, thank you. let's go to the north bay for our coverage where firefighters are trying to determine what caused a fire
8:06 am
that broke out in a two-story home yesterday evening. you see a picture tweeted by the fire department on your screen. the garage and second floor of that home near novato high school were engulfed in flames when crews got there. it took about 30 firefighters from novato, san rafael and marinwood about half an hour to put out a two-alarm fire. in the end, no injuries were reported. all right. time is 8:06. new this morning in our election coverage, in just the last hour supreme court u.s.is ruth bader ginsberg issued saying she regrets comments she made about donald trump. >> christien kafton is here in the studio with what is the latest in the battle of words between the supreme court justice and the presumptive gop nominee. >> absolutely. a lot of developments this morning on the political front. that statement released by the supreme court says that the justice now regrets her, quote, ill advised comments about donald trump. earlier this week ginsberg criticized trump calling him a, quote, faker and saying she can't imagine what the country would be like with trump as
8:07 am
president. she questioned why trump is the only candidate to have not released his tax information. trump fired back on twitter calling on the justice to resign. >> for her to come out and to say the kind of things -- there is almost something wrong with her. i don't think anybody has seen that before. >> reporter: are you questioning her mental capacity? >> yeah, i think i am. i think i am questioning perhaps her mental capacity. >> all of this comes as trump is preparing to announce his pick for a running mate. he announced yesterday by tweet that he would be naming his pick in manhattan tomorrow morning at 11 p.m. the frontrunners appear to be new jersey governor chris christie, indiana governor mike pence and former house speaker newt gingrich. to bring it back to the supreme court, keep in mind there is already a vacancy left by antonin scalia's death. if they continue to block the nominee merritt garland, the next president will have a supreme court justice to
8:08 am
appoint almost as should be as they get in office. dealing with ruth bader ginsberg and the republican nominee, it adds another layer to the already complex story. >> all right. thank you. officials in cleveland say they are prepared for the republican convention. the gop convention starts in that city on monday. security of course a top priority among city leaders and everyone heading to ohio for the convention. the president of the police union had complained for months that officers hadn't been trained and wouldn't have the equipment they needed because that equipment was ordered late. the police chief says security is a critical priority, and his department is ready for large crowds. ohio law, by the way, allows people to openly carry guns, but there is a secure zone around the convention hall where guns will not be allowed. hillary clinton speaking in illinois talked about race leelations -- relations in america and the need for unity following last week's violence. she spoke at the historic old state house in springfield,

welcome back to "mornings on 2". it's 8:30. we have develop news in the east bay. oakland police are collecting evidence after a deadly early morning shooting outside of a gas station. >> it happened in oakland very, very close to emeryville. ktvu's alex savidge has been on the scene all morning with information about the victim and evidence police may have to go on. >> reporter: yeah. good morning to you guys. surveillance video from this gas station near where the shooting happened and also other businesses may turn out to be key in this investigation. right now investigators going over some of that video here. you can see it's still a very active crime scene at 35th street and san pablo this morning. you have detectives on the scene here near the chevron gas station where the shooting happened 4:00 this morning. this was a man in his 30s.
8:31 am
he may have been walking to the convenience store at this gas station when police say someone opened fire on him. i want to bring in john with the oakland police department. thank you for taking the time. what do we know about the circumstances surrounding this killing? what may have led up to this? >> that's what investigators are looking to find the answers to. we are asking our community, anyone who heard or saw something, to please contact us. and you touched on it, alex. we have solved many homicide cases using video surveillance. using technology. and the community is a key part for helping us to solve where we've lost a life, a member of our community. we are asking any business or residents in this area, it's a very key area for our city, a lot of activity between -- that runs through san pablo and 35th avenue, check your video surveillance system. you may have captured something prior to the crime, during the crime, or after the crime.
8:32 am
>> reporter: and as you pointed out a second ago, someone may have captured something important on their video surveillance system and they may not know it? >> right. so we're asking when you come home from work or before you leave for work or if you are off work check your system. you may have captured a key portion or something prior, during, or after that may help investigators. >> reporter: this is the 34th homicide so far here in the city of oakland. how does that compare to where things stood about this time last year? >> 34 losses of life so far this year, and last year we were looking at about 43 losses of life at this time last year. >> reporter: okay. and an on going investigation here as the oakland police department piecing this homicide together, trying to figure out who shot and killed a man said to be about in his 30s near a gas station early this morning near san pablo and 35th street. investigators still trying to track down the shootner this
8:33 am
case -- shooter in this case. 8:33. we will help get you out the door by checking weather and your need for a jacket or the tank top and flip-flops. >> i'll tell you, i mean, 45- degree difference on some of the temps depending where you are. if you are by the coast, forget about getting warm. even santa cruz. you know, usually santa cruz, that sun comes out, and it will, but it's not going to be very warm. 50s, 60s, to very, very low 70s. inland 90s to 100s. the fog has been hanging out around sutra tower. it was late to the party, but it continues to work its way north. it's very shallow. maybe some clearing -- if that's true, let me know. but again with this kind of a pattern, it stops about the golden gate, trying to make a move towards alcatraz. this will keep parts of the city cool. i know the fog horns were sounding in richmond this
8:34 am
morning. west 3. that won't do it. 60s, 70s for some. 50s for others. half moon bay, montera, 60, 61. 60s on some of the temps. a cold, foggy day for some. there is always pockets of the sun on the coast. one thing to look at, the remains of hurricane celia. look at that moisture. keep an eye on that. see if it will filledder in our area. patchy fog, warm to hot. 100 inland. cool by the coast tonight. if you get the sun, it's not bad. if you don't, 60s, 70s, 80s, 90s to 100s. 8:34. sal, what do you have? >> well, we have some slow traffic out there, steve. it's still going to be slow in some of the commutes. eastshore freeway comes to mind. we have a 37-minute delay between the carquinez bridge and the macarthur maze. can you see now that is red, which means that you see a lot more slow traffic heading out to the bay bridge. when you get to the bay bridge though, we have seen some improvement. that 880 ramp on the left there
8:35 am
-- hey, there is our spider. that was weird. the spider is in the carpool lane. okay. it left. it's clearing out. that means that traffic is going to clear up pretty soon. let's move along and take a look at the commute on the metro area. southbound 101 is slowing into mountain view. so is northbound 101. not as bad as yesterday, but certainly filled in on the way up to the west valley. 8:35. back to the desk. in other news, two people were arrested in connection with a shooting in the hayward area where a man was killed sitting in his truck waiting for a traffic light. it happened yesterday afternoon about 1:00 at meekland avenue and blossom way in an unincorporated part of alameda county. sheriff's deputies searched for the suspect using k-9 units and a drone. one officer eventually found the suspect, but he did not have the gun on him. >> it's a public safety concern to have a weapon on the loose.
8:36 am
obviously, it's evidence that is of vital importance to us. >> now, authorities later made a second arrest. surveillance video shows an suv dropped off the gunman before the shooting and investigators tracked down that vehicle and took a woman into custody. deputies are still out there looking for the gun and a possible motive for the shooting. the san francisco police department could help in hundreds of unsolved killings. they have asked the mayor for funds to expand the cold case unit. the department says the unit currently has one full time inspector and two retired inspectors. the request for about $160,000 would pay for two more retired inspectors who would work part time. if the funding goes through, the unit should be set by the end of the summer. 8:36. oakland police and federal agents are investigating several gun store burglaries in northern california after a honda crv used inside at least one of the burglaries was linked to oakland. this surveillance video also shows a burglary suspect wearing an oakland u.s.a.
8:37 am
sweatshirt during a gun store break in yesterday morning. you see the face of the burglars in that break in yesterday in rockland. 45 minutes later there was another gun store burglary in folsom. that rockland gun store owner says it's very disturb disturbing to have had happen to him. >> to have somebody just think they can just take it really bothers me because i worked hard my whole life. >> police in east oakland stopped an suv matching the one used in that rockland burglary. federal agents detained several suspects but have given no other specifics. however, federal charges could carry longer jail sentences if the suspects are convicted. now, investigators are now trying to figure out if the same suspects are responsible for several gun store burglaries in northern and central california gun stores in the last five months. that includes thefts here in the bay area, in sacramento,
8:38 am
and the central valley. here in california, it's usually a misdemeanor to steal a gun. not a felony. it all depends on how much the gun is worth. now, if the gun is worth more than $950, that's grand theft, which is a felony. taking a gun worth less than $950 is petty theft, and that's a misdemeanor. they could have different penalties if they are stolen. >> if you steal a gun, what purpose do you have for it? you are gonna commit a crime yourself or you are gonna sell it to somebody who is gonna commit a crime. >> this was an unintended consequence and we need this loophole closed. >> prop 47 reduced penalties on stolen property and drug possession to reduce crowding.
8:39 am
the governor wants voters to decide on gun reforms in november. the two men accused of robbing a armored truck are due in court. search got a and ivan rosales, investigators say they robbed the truck and shot an armored truck guard. the first wave of san jose police officers with body cameras is out on patrol. the city police chief called it a historic moment yesterday. they clip on to an officer's uniform. police went through training yesterday. community groups call the cameras a step in the right direction for improving relations with police. >> i think it's a good thing. i commend the department for bringing forward this idea. i think it's something that can help kind of clarify and help us learn what happens when
8:40 am
there is an interaction between the police and a person on the street. >> watchdog groups say they are concerned about police department protocols, which they say haven't made it clear whether the public or an oversight board reviews the cameras of a disputed confrontation with a suspect. lbgt history one step closer to being taught in public schools. >> brian flores in san francisco with more details, brian, and which grades are going to be affected. >> reporter: yeah, you know, the last time the state changed its history curriculum in the public schools was about ten years ago, guys. so certainly a lot has changed during that time, including the rights of the lbgt community. now, what's going to be happening today is a draft of this curriculum will be reviewed by the state education board. in the draft it starts introducing concepts of diverse families in the second grade. then in the fourth grade students are taught about california's role in the gay
8:41 am
rights movement. it will continue on through high school. >> the fact that we are able to shine a light on it now, yes, it feels like it's almost been too late to shine a light on it. but it's our responsibility, you know. it's our responsibility to say, like, we need to be more, like, inclusive in order to survive. this is a history that each of us has gone through. >> reporter: up until now its implementation has been slow due to the attempts to overturn it as well as budget cuts that stopped the work on creating these recommendations. again the law was passed back in 2011. some are critical. others someday the details of their struggles are left out. other changes are details of president obama's time in office, the bettersero program and contributions of filipinos to world war ii as well as the farm movement. coming up on "mornings on 2", we are going to talk with a san francisco unified district
8:42 am
school board member to get his take. another group also wants california textbooks changed. the california chapter of the council on american-islamic relations say there are blatantly inaccurate portrayals of islam, seikism and cas te system. that group will submit new inside to the state board of education, which is expected to vote on making changes later today. there are new developments to bring you in the case of the oakland teen who was declared brain dead after a tonsil surgery complications more than two years ago. the legal victory for the family of jahi mcmath. another irs scam warning. the strange way a woman was talked into handing over thousands of dollars before she realized she was a victim. we are looking at traffic that is going to be slow in
8:43 am
many areas, including the san mateo and dumbarton bridges. still very busy on the way over to the other side. on the other side, the other side inland, it's going to be hot. by the coast a lot of fog there. big differences in the temps. we will show you those coming up. i just picked us up 2 breakfast croissants for $4, when this bear attacked. with one swipe, it devoured one of the croissants. then jack showed up, and took care of the beast, so i could escape. and that's what happened to your breakfast croissant. and yours? it survived. enjoy freshly cracked egg with ham and bacon. or sausage. two tasty croissants at an even tastier $4 price. it's a deal you'll devour.

8:47 am
disabled. he said we are all disabled in some way. he describes himself as differently abled. a woman learned a tough lesson after she was tricked into giving away almost $3,000 in an irs phone scam. the woman says she received several messages from someone claiming to be with the irs. well, when she called back the person on the other end of the line demanded she immediately withdraw money from her bank, that she buy itunes gift cards and read the numbers on those gift cards a way of payment for money owed to the irs. but it wasn't until after she gave the scam artist about $2,800 worth of gift card codes that she realized what happened. >> there is a pushy guy. they sounded like they were trying to reassure me. >> give me a call back as soon as possible once you receive this message. once again, this is the irs. >> see, she told her father
8:48 am
what was going on, but there wasn't anything authorities could do get her money back. now, she managed to return some of the gift cards that were not used, and now she hopes her story serves as a warning to you and me and others about that scam. time is 8:48. let's go to sal. check our commute one more time, sal. >> all right. dave, thank you very much. the bay bridge toll plaza we are going to see slow traffic still into san francisco. it's getting a little better. a look at that 880 ramp, and that's better, especially if you are using fast track. that should be a nice commute for you there. there are no major problems on the bridge once you get on. we have been looking at san francisco. northbound 101 is heavy and slow from candlestick park or 280. it gets better after caesar chavez. looking at the rest of the peninsula, 101 is a little bit slow in san mateo, and we can do that with the maps here. san mateo. and also in redwood city and menlo park. northbound 101 is very slow
8:49 am
still from san jose to mountain view. let's bring steve in here. >> thank you, sir. very good morning. warm to hot. already getting warm for some well inland. by the coast there is a lot of fog there keeping temperatures very cool. does look like it's pulled off on santa cruz. i think it will as well towards stinson beach. okay. not very warm. an offshore breeze, everything would be all systems go. but the fog is hanging in there. inland temps 90s to 100. there is a lot of fog coast and trying to move through the golden gate. high pressure is built in. today it will peak out though. it does look like though by late friday into saturday another low drops down from the pacific northwest. that has been the pattern since may, and that will bump that high out of the picture and allow for a significant cooling trend to take in by the weekend. probably sunday for some well, well inland. saturday i think we will notice it. fog up to bodega bay. it took a turn at point reyes and filled in for some that were clear a couple hours ago. santa cruz has cleared off a bit. there is a ton on the san mateo, santa cruz coast.
8:50 am
also the marin coast. trying to get through the getting. a little bit there. it runs into high pressure and too much resistance. in the last few frames, capitola and santa cruz looks like that has pulled off. that's per usual. i went low 70s there. the water temps are cool. 50, 52 bogut and san francisco buoy. fairfield has a delta breeze at 3 miles per hour, they are done. that means they are done as in warm. 70 fairfield. 53 half moon bay. so we'll go from 50s to low 101. kelseyville 76 already. healdsburg 65. well on our way to warm temps. higher clouds from what was once celia right there. now getting caught up in the picture. something to keep an eye on as that system drops down from the south. should stay south. would not surprise me at all, but temperatures today 50s, 60s by the beaches. 70s maybe for a few -- 80s, 90s
8:51 am
to 100s. huge difference. patchy fog. some of it is very thick. warm to hot. near 100 inland. nice to cool by the coast, or if you are stuck in that fog it's really tough. this will be the warmest day by far. 60s, 70s, 80s, 90s, to 101. it's going to take a couple days for contra costa, santa clara. today toasty. but if you have -- if you are in the sales business and you drive around all over the bay, keep an eye on your car thermometer because it may 40 degrees from some to daly city to half moon bay. tomorrow a little bit more fog and then a big fog bank by the weekend. >> all right. i will wait for that. time is 8:51. today is a spare the air day. that means the ozone pollution forecast to reach unhealthy levels. that combined with the inland is causing the alert. everybody is encouraged to try to carpool or take public

welcome back to "mornings on 2". our time is 8:54. a state appeals court has ruled that mother of jahi mcmath, who was declared brain dead after complications from tonsil surgery at children's hospital in oakland, can legally try to prove jahi is still alive. the 13-year-old's family did not accept the brain dead declaration, and they moved jahi to new jersey where she is still on organ support machines. jahi's family now must present evidence that she is alive. if the courtsides with them, the family could sue her surgeon and children's hospital for millions of dollars. but if the court rules jahi is
8:55 am
dead, the family would be limited to a wrongful death lawsuit. that is capped at $250,000. well, two security robots at the stanford shopping center, they are gonna stay on their charging pads today. they won't be moving around because a san jose woman says a robot ran over her child's foot. now, the company is apologizing, but also says video shows their robot did not run over the child. the company and the mall are investigating. however, the mountain view- based manufacturer reviewed video footage and says the child ran into that security robot. >> the child came in looking back over his shoulder and hit the machine about here. >> that's totally not true because it hit my son's head. so it has to -- he has the bruises. it's swollen. >> the child's mother says the robot's camera angles may not have captured the whole story. she says her son bumped the robot, but the robot ran over his right foot.
8:56 am
it's not clear when the security robots will be used again. last night the annual espy awards for sports, it started on a somber note. nba superstars carmelo anthony, chris paul, dwyane wade and lebron james called for an end to racial profiling and gun violence. >> we all feel helpless and frustrated by the violence. we do. that's not acceptable. it's time to look into the mirror and ask ourselves, what are we doing to create change? >> afterwards steph curry accepted the record-breaking performance award. he made 402 three-pointers during the regular season and he thanked his fellow stars for their message on social change. the cleveland cavaliers were the big winners picking up awards for the best team, best moment for winning the nba title, and lebron received best male athlete, best nba player, and best championship performance. one of the more emotional moments last night was when
